"Brine Flies" Bodie Off The Beaten Path Tip by travelgirl3
Bodie Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 12 photos
Brine flies practically covered the surface of the shallow of Mono Lake. In the past, protein starved Mono Indians harvested and ate the larvae, giving them the name Mono - meaning "fly eating".
While Mono Lake is an extremely serene looking place, the overwhelming smell of the salt water and seagull poo in the desert heat and the thought of eating fly larvae all combined to make my visit to Mono Lake a very short one.
